iPad Practice: Overwatch – Talon’s Day Out

july 18 Overwatch reaper widowmaker sombra talon fanart ksolaris tanukidoodles

Okay so… YES. Still struggling to get used to this whole drawing-on-an-iPad thing.

I’m slowly getting accustomed to the grip of the stylus, as well as the weight and feel of the iPad itself. Still a little clunky but yeah… maybe I’m making progress haha

Anyway it’s a long weekend right now, and almost everyone’s on vacation (of course I still have work… because #workfromhomeproblems and all that…)

I figured Overwatch’s villain group should have a day off, too. So here’s Widowmaker, Sombra, and Daddy Reaper having a beach day before going back to base to tackle that pesky problem that is Overwatch haha. xDD

Oh, I DID change one thing, though… I decided that I’m too dumb to use Procreate Procreate is kind of a little heavy to use, so a friend recommended I switch to MediBang Paint. It does feel a lot more like a combination of Photoshop and PaintTool SAI to me, both of which I’m familar with, so it actually felt a little nicer to use. Also they have a lovely library of halftones, backgrounds, and visual references to use so that’s fantastic. ❤

iPad Practice: Overwatch – Sexy Junkrat

Yes, I’m still doing the whole iPad practice thing. :v

Anyway here’s my junkboi, Overwatch’s Junkrat.

Yes, I am aware I may have bishonen-ified him quite a bit.

Whatevs, mah boi is underappreciated and needs all the love he can get. ❤

(yep, still using Procreate…)

Patterns #1 – Gemini

Finally a new drawing on this blog! YAY!

Okay, just to get it out of the way first, I feel like I need to apologize for the watermark. After what happened, I decided to just follow the example of other artists like Nene Thomas when it comes to watermarks, because at the very least I can make it a little harder for plagiarists to use my stuff. 😀 Also no more linking to the hi-res versions, I’m afraid. You CAN, however, view a slightly embiggened version over at my DeviantArt page. 😀

ANYWAY, so here we are.

Over the past year, I’ve been fascinated with doodling, particularly the kind by the likes of Kerby Rosanes and Rob Cham. I love the details and the seemingly random explosions of STUFF in their works, and I’ve been trying to emulate that. I still have no idea how they do what they do (srsly guys, HOW?? D:), and right now, patterns is what I’ve got. I did, however, find that I enjoy drawing these things. You can just kind of zen out and relax while watching TV or waiting for people or whatever.

Another artist whose work I’ve also been trying to take after is Yuko Shimizu. I adore the heavy, dark inking, and combined with her coloring process, everything just looks fabulous and magical. Again, though, I’m still studying her work, and so far, I’m still pretty much off the mark ahahahahah hah…. T__T

So yeah, still got a lot of learning to do. =)))

For now, in case anyone’s interested, this is what it looks like before coloring:

P.S.

While I’m promising to practice daily, no, I’m not doing the 365 (or rather, 366) day challenge this year. I decided that I want to be able to savor things this time around, and not put myself under unnecessary pressure to bang out hasty work on a daily basis. =))) I figured it should get easier as time goes on and who knows maybe I’ll be able to do and actually complete it next year, but like any marathon, I guess I still need to train for that. :p
